This has been going on for weeks, and for weeks we have been trying to let the goofy thing in there with the chickens. She’s not much of a people guinea, so when we would try to lend a helping hand she would run. I thought that maybe I could catch her at night after she had gone to roost, but she had moved to different sleeping quarters. I could not find where she was roosting…that is, until today.
Lately, she has been roosting on the roof of the hen house. I never saw her up there, but she finally produced enough evidence to for me to figure it out…AND, I came
this close to stepping in it. That’s when I decided that tonight she would be sleeping with the chickens.
So, I propped the gate open with a cage, and to it I connected one of those portable, collapsible small animal fences. Then I got her between all that and the hen house. Instead of going through the hen house gate, she went into the cage. She was not happy, but I managed to capture her in the cage and turn her loose in the hen house. I don’t know why I didn’t think of all that sooner. But never the less, tonight…
she’s sleeping with the chickens.
